Rather Interesting Facts About The Garage
The Artist Formerly Known As...
PRINCE helped launch the Garage 15 years ago when he played a secret gig after his sell out stadium show. A packed club was treated to a greatest hits set. Prince was then called “The Artist Formerly Known As” at the time and asked that no one looked at him. What would happen if you did is anyones guess.
Live music launch-pad...
The Garage is a stepping-stone for bands that are making their way up to the big time. Kasabian, Pulp, Travis, FLC, Faith No More and Biffy Clyro have all played at the Garage on their way to the top while legends such as Ian Dury, The Pretenders, The Proclaimers and Roger Taylor have all appeared over the years.
Rolferoos Favourite Venue!...
Its Rolf Harris favourite venue! Student favourite Rolf has played to a sold out Main Hall four times and he loves it. He is treated like a God by his adoring public and sits for up to 2 ½ hours after each show signing and drawing for fans. He even signed one eager fans enormously disproportionate boob.
Aftershow & VIP Heaven...
The Garage is a favourite venue for aftershow parties. The likes of The Strokes, Him, The Darkness, 36 Crazyfists, Queens of the Stone Age, Lostprophets, Sum 41, You Me At Six, Nickelback and FLC have all enjoyed our infamous hospitality. Some American bands have even added Aftershock to their rider; they got a taste for it after our boss, Donald, poured it down their necks in vast quantities!
Blind Fury….(on the dancefloor)
Legendary guitarist Jeff Healey played the Garage in 1999. Despite being blind (and blind drunk) he sneaked away from the aftershow party down in the dressing rooms and made his way unaided to the main hall where he danced all night. We still dont know how he managed it, its a bit of a trek and the club was very, very busy!
Im a Celebrity – Let Me Sing Karaoke!
The Garages karaoke room has proved a massive hit with the strangest of people. Andrew WK and his band, real hardcore rock types, wouldnt get off the mic. Their favourite song? “Daniel” by Elton John. Michelle McManus also regularly belts out a tune and puts everyone else to shame… and most recently Troy from Queens of the Stone Age even got up to sing as well.
